  • Roy Keane's statement: "If Dennis Irwin were there, he would have stopped the protests in an instant, true professional he is."

  • If only people were this passionate about issues that actually mattered! The world could be a very different place.

  • Good luck to them. Whoever thinks their protests were a "disgrace" doesn't understand the relationship between the powerful and powerless. Impactful and creative - superb! More of it. And not just in football. Power and their money, in all areas of life, have been taking the piss for far too long. Now more than ever, as the world shifts towards an even more favorable position for elites, people need to start being more creative, impactful and united!



  • i LOVE man utd! @thegameboy_official

  • Who cares? What tf is the problem here?

  • Stop attending these matches. They won't these moronic fans will keep paying because they like to see 22 men kicking a leather ball.

  • Carras just raged he had to spin all the way up to that dump for nothing 😂😂😂

    • @nieooj gotoy when?

    • what a dumbass fans this is not about greed for money lol club suffers cuz covid the club NEEDS MONEY

  • Why don't the owners of Manchester United ban Gary for entering the stadium?

  • Our rights and freedoms are being stripped left right and centre, but yeah, chose to protest over a football game. That's what's important...

  • Too many people involved in football just in it to make money and not for the love of the sport....the club may as well be called "Manchester United Ltd." and no longer a "club"

  • Football is a business... but business needs a purpose beyond just profit. United could be a great team, great club, great business and win trophies, but not with the glazers in. #GlazersOut

  • ☠☡☢Big


  • The glazer are the worst

  • My worry is that some fans who are against this and came out to protest will get lifetime bans which is bad.

  • Too much money fans have fed this via sky and bt sport etc

  • Football is dead

  • Your next Vladimir Putin's ally Abramovich.

  • Arsenal need to take notes.

  • I’m very surprised they reported on this. Those we don’t speak about will not be happy

  • what a dumbass fans this is not about greed for money lol club suffers cuz covid the club NEEDS MONEY

  • But fook it... - Conor McGregor

  • garry neville what a tosser

  • Very responsible Gary 😂 Manchester United are a product of footballs greed

  • I see even the Glazers can't afford the water hoses lol

  • Fair play to utd fans.

  • to everyone who says violence does not solve anything. how do we deal with terrorism? how did we deal with twin towers? how we have capital punishment and countries that don't people say we should. how did women get the right to vote? how did black people get the right to sit on a bus.? how do the pigs deal with people who won't obey?🤣 the pigs are hated by the people after covid. shame on them. from what I see violence solves everything 🤣

  • Piss off Gary, your fans wrecked the game on Sunday, protest after the game, peacefully, not before! Liverpool should of been given the 3 points..

    • @vbddfy euuyt Fcuk souness! Fcuk UTD, they should have points taken off them, and fined. We all know why they are protesting, and I’m on board. But do it peacefully and respectfully. Not drunken thugs wrecking the place.. Liverpool should have been given the 3 points.

    • Souness is so out of touch.

  • What did they expect would happen when they said yes to the superleague?

  • yeah but destroying equiptment and attaking people with rockets is not ok

  • What a bunch of insignificant imbeciles😂 little gammon ants rioting over a game🤣

  • I think they just didnt want to witness city winning the league early hence the protest again that particular game. They could've protested weeks ago, why not this game?...

  • Someone needs a change of undies

  • Shouldn't everyone try to protest against Premier League?

  • Shouldn't everyone try to protest against Premier League?

  • Why dont players take a pay cut this money has to found somewhere

  • Good on them

  • glazer looks like a jew

  • Its about time !!!!!!

  • I don’t understand why fans are complaining so much like just let clubs do whatever the hell they want to do at the other day it’s beneficial to everybody I think club should be able to decide what they wanna do. People also don’t realize that a lot of the associations of football are doing the exact same thing and football clubs wanna take back that power.

  • Souness is so out of touch.

  • 😍

  • And Souness is a damned disgrace. Planting a flag in the center circle in Istanbul, yet “had his life endangered” by a bottle of beer. What a cowardly hypocrite.

  • Go home u stupid donkeys!! There’s bigger problems in the world right now! F off home! Eeeejits! 🙄

  • Muppets.

  • From a Lego Star wars Fan...I respect what the Manchester United football team fanatics are trying to do for their football club...I found this in my recommendations have noooo idea what the hack is going on...

  • Graeme Souness showing his lack of class as per usual

  • Graeme Souness should shut up

    • @ngc 5139 He's right that no-one should knife police. He's completely wrong that Man U are only complaining because they aren't doing well.

    • He's right.

  • Can't belive Fans have have only just realised this sport is about money, it's been going on for years, just look at the costs to go to your local club,?? 😀

    • I think it's more that the ESL unified everyone's hatred at the owners so if there is ever going to be a time to force the owner out, this is it.


  • Graeme Souness is so against what's needed. Dont listen to this old fashioned pensioner.

  • Could we transfer this energy towards the government? Take your eye off the ball and realise there's a bigger one that's more compelling

  • Fight for your rights!

  • lol protest your government not football

  • 0:20 Legends say that the policeman's over there are City fans

  • Europa league club.

  • Let's keep this up guys. Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool, Man U.... Let's not cease till they feel the heat.

  • Glazers out

  • I'm an American but I completely support all European club fans against this!! Keep fighting Manchester Utd fans!! 💪🏼👏🏼

  • man utd fans are smart, they did this on the biggest game in england with millions world wide watching and got it cancelled, hope arsenal do the same vs villarreal

  • Don’t people have jobs? Who is free on a weekday

  • Grown men getting there nickers in a twist over a sport

  • Brits don't know that sports teams are a business?

  • The power of the people at its finest

  • Sky should sack Neville for his irresponsible response to violent and law breaking thugs.

  • People are alway talking how United have spent £1 billion in the last 10 years. But that’s exactly the fans point - City and Chelsea have spent way over £1 billion in the same time. United have fallen behind their rivals in terms of spending and success. And its United who generate the most money by far!

  • Poor Gary trying to sound clever .

  • The police should of stayed out of it...

  • Massive love for Gary touched me with his passion made me happy I felt the same way

  • The guy said they’re turned them into cash cow that year’s ago ya divvy

  • They prefer Russian oligarchs

  • Good job

  • United fans delayed city celebration they don't want glazer. Please bring oil money. Red could turn to sky 💙💙💙💙💙

  • Slashing an officer over this? Shame

  • Axe body spray? What?

    • It’s just a Soccer game

  • Here in America we've only ever had super leagues in football NFL, NBA basketball and MLB baseball. It's all we've ever known. I understand the European outrage, but Americans see no issue here.

  • The Glazers should leave man utd and let them sink in their own massive debts. Let the fans open their skinny wallets and pay running club costs.

  • This happened because of what the glazzers they tried to get ride of us first now its are turn to fight back against them

  • very simple solution DO NOT FOLLOW FOOTBALL anymore

  • What I've seen.... *European citizens* . "ESL is of the devil and will destroy our local leagues. " The rest of the world. "Liverpool , Madrid, barca , Manu, all in one league week in week out." 👁👄👁

  • As an Manchester United fan living here in Wilmington NC in the USA I dont blame the fans for doing this.the glazers MUST GO NOW

  • More justified then BLM

  • I’m a hammer and I’m fully behind Man U fans👊👍

  • The problem is, they don't need the fans who are willing to travel to games and support the team. They're easily replaced by fake crowd noise for TV, and even if home advantage is that significant, it doesn't matter if all teams lose it. All the club owners need is TV figures. That dwarfs match day gate receipts.

  • I do not condone the actions the fans have done breaching the stadium but we can't really blame them since that definitely speaks louder than words as the people who aren't happy with the whole situation. The board nearly went through on a deal that would have almost ruined football, ofcourse these fans are going to protest at the heart of the club.

  • Who opened the door for the idiots to get in?!?!!

  • Was watching live it was hilarious. All the pundits except the host (and Souness but only for about 5 mins despite the rest of the time being with them (apparently that's enough to hate him too)) were saying how they weren't really against the fans and Sky's spokesman kept having to reread the statement saying they don't support it blah blah and Gary and Jamie were like "no they just walked past they were fine" and Keane was like "they did the right thing it should be about football" it was funny asf.

  • The Glazers should go back to fitting windows.

  • football is just so dumb

  • This might b a bit far fetched but united fans could of kicked off any game b4 their game against liverpool wanting Glazer out, but chose ta kick off that evening cos if liverpool would of beat man u then city would of won tha title by losing ta liverpool n all scousers could of always made fun of man u supporters, I said it might b a bit far fetched, just a 4t I had

  • Carragh shits himself at sight of United fans

  • They.will.go.anywhere For.the.big.checks

  • Pogba is happy so why this need of protests?

  • Sadly, they reacted a bit too late. Damage was done few yrs ago, now its just the part nobody wanted to see.... Corporate ways dont care about nothing (NOTHING) but money.... RIP English Football.

  • We think your boring

  • Should have been booted out of Europe this season. Yours Sincerely A.S Roma

  • Shame people of this country can't be this passionate when it comes down to corrupt politicians

  • This isn't just about football!! I feel like this is foreshadowing how people, especially football fans, feel & will eventually react about the UK Government - amazing to see unity like this in the face of oppression, there's so many similarities here in terms of the Oligarch ownership & business priorities over the needs & wants of the people (like 1/5 of every COVID contract to Tory friends, resulting in £2bn+ lmao)
